Call for Submissions

NordiCHI 2022 in Aarhus will continue the NordiCHI tradition of being an international-level venue for dissemination and development of Human-Computer Interaction research in the broadest sense. The conference will be held in Aarhus, Denmark on October 8-12 2022. See http://nordichi2022.org where more detailed information will follow.

We invite the following types of submissions: Research papers, Critiques, Late-breaking work, Workshops, Demos, and Doctoral consortium. For details about how to submit, please read the submission guide.


We invite papers in all areas of Human-Computer Interaction, and welcome the submission of work presenting advances in theory, methodology, technology or practice. Submitted work must be original and not accepted previously for publication elsewhere. 

We welcome both longer papers that require more space to present their contribution, and short papers that present significant advances concisely. 

All papers will be published and will be available in the ACM Digital Library. At least one author must register and present accepted work at the conference.

The Critique submission category will establish a forum for critical and insightful perspectives that challenge the status quo of computing. Submissions must address the conference theme: “Participative computing for sustainable futures,” and will be assessed based on their ability to critically dissect, provoke, or inspire. The Critiques track will spark thought-provoking discussions across subject areas, research traditions, and generations.

Potential submission formats include but are not limited to:

  • Essay

  • Creative Writing e.g manifestos, stories, fictions

  • Pictorial

  • Artwork e.g software, video games, audio-visual art

  • Theoretical or analytical article

  • Provotype

  • Artifact with networked, generative, and/or programmed elements

Important Dates

  • Submission (abstract and full submission): 27th April 2022 (16h CET)

  • Author notification: 01 July 2022

  • Camera-ready deadline: 15 August 2022 (16h CET)

Chairs: Ida Larsen-Ledet, Søren Pold, Winnie Soon

The Late-Breaking Work category is an opportunity to present new and exciting contributions that outline tentative findings, early research ideas and technical work, novel conversations toward future work as well as theoretical or methodological discussions that are currently developing in ongoing work. 

Accepted LBW will be presented as posters during the NordiCHI 2022 conference. Details regarding presentation and print will be provided with the acceptance notification.

We welcome a broad range of submissions around a diversity of topics and contribution types:

  • An original technology, technique or design in the early stages and/or with or without an evaluation.

  • Selected results from ongoing qualitative or quantitative studies with various levels of analysis.

  • Early stages of research with reflections, important implications and/or (methodological) considerations.

  • Novel discussions and/or analysis of existing or ongoing work that adds a new perspective.

  • Open work that invites feedback or community engagement around next steps, implications to research, applicability and/or novel approaches to analysis and collaborations.

Important dates

  • Submission deadline: June 1st, 2022 (16h CET)

  • Author notification July 1st, 2022

  • Camera-ready deadline August 15th 2022 (16h CET)

NordiCHI 2022 welcomes proposals for workshops as spaces for debate and co-development of ideas and approaches related to the advancement of research and practice within the field of Human-Computer Interaction.

Accepted workshops should aim to attract 10-25 participants, and run for around a full day, with scheduled morning, lunch and afternoon breaks. Workshops will run in parallel with courses as pre-conference activities on October 8-9.

Important dates

  • Submission deadline: May 20, 2022 (16h CET)

  • Notification deadline June 15, 2022

  • Camera-ready deadline: August 15 (16h CET)

Chairs:  Maarten van Mechelen & Eva Eriksson

NordiCHI 2022 welcomes researchers, industry, art and design practitioners to submit their work to the Demos track. The track invites interactive art and design installations, interface or system demonstrations, tangible prototypes and other interactive experiences that critically or creatively explore the conference themes and provoke discussions around novel technologies.

The track is open to all exploratory, provocative, innovative and ambitious contributions from industry, research, startups, maker communities, the arts, and design. If you have an interesting prototype, device, system, exhibit or installation, we want to know about it. The NordiCHI 2022 conference is a perfect venue for demonstrating your work to the community and beyond!

The selection process for Demos is curated, that is, selected by an esteemed committee, but not sent out to external reviewers. The curated demo content will be selected from demonstration submissions, accepted papers, as well as projects invited by the demo chairs. Authors will not receive formal feedback on their submission, other than the selection decision.

Important dates

  • Submission deadline: June 1st, 2022 (16h CET)

  • Notification deadline July 1st, 2022

  • Camera-ready deadline: August 15 2022 (16h CET)

Chairs: Germán Leiva & Jens Emil Grønbæk

NordiCHI 2022 welcomes submissions to the doctoral consortium from PhD students in the field of Human-Computer Interaction, in particular students who are halfway or more through their project. 

Students will be accepted based on a four-page description of their project and its status.

We aim to accept 15-20 students, for a full day of activity in parallel with courses and workshops as pre-conference activities on October 8-9 2022. During the day, the students will get feedback on their projects and a chance to discuss achievements and plans with each other and the organizers.

Important dates

  • Submission deadline: June 1st, 2022 (16h CET)

  • Author notification July 1st, 2022

Chairs:  Susanne Bødker and Antti Saalovara

NordiCHI 2022 welcomes submissions for panels. The panels track seeks to offer conference attendees an opportunity to participate in a dialogical space to discuss novel areas, controversial ideas and hot topics in human-computer interaction. In a panel, assumptions about a topic are productively challenged, diverse perspectives are represented, and the format encourages engagement and dialogue. A panel should seek to arrive at new understandings through dialogue and interaction amongst and between panel members and audience members. Ideally, a conversation or discussion in a panel interweaves with the very fabric of the rest of the conference, sparking conversations (but not necessarily controversies) in coffee breaks and amongst conference participants.


Panels are 60-90 minute sessions that involve significant interaction with audience members. A Panel can come in many forms, but often the sessions include a group of experts invited to debate a topic or theme, enact some aspect of their expertise, or reflect on and compare their diverse experiences. Panels should also include involvement from the audience, often through questions and answers, voting or critique of the experts’ presentations, and so forth.



Important dates:

  • Submission deadline: June 1st, 2022 (16h CET)

  • Author notification July 1st, 2022

  • Camera-ready deadline August 15th 2022 (16h CET)


Chairs: Dag Svanæs and Lone Koefoed Hansen
